the cover of darkness the michigan legislature passed a bill that would allow gun owners to carry concealed weapons into hospitals, churches, bars stadiums, day care centers and schools. and just a few hours after the legislature passed that bill 26 people including 20 children were killed. gunned down at the elementary school in sandy hook elementary. the governor said that has given him clear pause. i beg your rick snyder please veto those bills and stop the madness, but here is what he is up against. 24 michigan lawmakers are acting on behalf of alec that conservative group that drafts gun legislation for lawmakers, and alec has been bank rolled by the nra. michigan's alec chair cosponsored the extreme gun legislation that rammed through the house and senate last week. but this is not just about michigan. michigan has been passing some crazy bills these last few weeks, but this is much broader. alec's legislation has been used across the country to weaken gun laws. since 2009, 99-nra-backed alec laws have passed in 36 states. all of those states are states
of thing. >> arming teachers. is that really where we are in this country? in michigan, republicans are on the verge of exactly that. the republican governor, rick snyder, is debating whether to sign a new bill that would allow concealed weapons in churches and schools. gop lawmakers passed a bill last week late at night in a lame duck session, literally, literally just hours before the tragedy at sandy hook. now snyder says he'll give the bill extra consideration. what that consideration is will be looked at through the lens of everything that's happened. the governor seems to understand that everything that has happened may not be acceptable anymore. but is the rest of the gop ready to listen? joining me now is michigan state representative brandon dillen, the democrat who spoke out forcefully against this new bill. and michelle cotter, washington correspondent for the daily beast. thank you both for joaning me. >> representative dilldillen, d governor snyder think we need more guns in schools after what happened in connecticut? >> well, i certainly hope not. >> he had to sign a b
in michigan passed a bill to allow people to carry concealed weapons in churches and in ohio, cars in guns at the state house and in florida, soon issuing their millionth concealed weapon and firearms license. just today, david, in michigan, republican governor rick snyder's pledged to take a closer look at the measure that would allow concealed weapons in schools and churches and reacting to the news not to what many probably assume from the start would be common sense of why would you need a gun in a school? a concealed gun. >> i understand the frustration you're saying. what the good news is that organizations like mayors against illegal guns are in the fight. and in michigan, in particular, the nra had wanted to make sure that the permit system in michigan was abolished for buying handguns and so i think that things are being done. remember, all of these actions happened prior to friday and what happened in newtown. i am telling you that i am absolutely hopeful and i think things are different. i hear that in the news. >> you bring up the nra. let's play what michael bloomberg. >> nra'
to work state, the newest is the state of michigan. if any state was emblematic of organized labor in this country, it has to be the state of michigan, moving in the direction of north carolina and 23 other states as well. this is starting to look like a serious shift historically. perhaps the entire nation becoming brightwork. >> i agree with that. i agree with that because you see 91010 states. especially michigan. lou: insurance exchanges states are deciding whether to create insurance for themselves or -- i don't know whether to call them architects are what obamacare -- these insurance exchanges are not happening. eighteen states plus washington dc are the only ones who have declared that he they will set their own exchanges under obamacare. by my math, that leaves 25. we are going to leave it up to the government. that is remarkable. >> i was proud to be part of a 26 a coalition that led the fight against this health care lawsuit to this report. we were able to carve t the ability for states to opt out. i am proud of governor nikki haley for deciding to opt out of this. this

and the attorney for the michigan coalition for responsible gun owners. i want your reaction, first of all, dan gross, what do you make of how the president said, and how serious do you think he is about actually doing something rather than just words? >> we're inspired. i mean, we're inspired to take him at his word. the president, since this has happened, has called for meaningful action. he's saying all the right things, and he's talking about all the right things. it's up to us, the american public now, including all the victims that have been impacted by these tragedies, to make sure he does take that action. those are the dots that need to be connected. this is the time. change has to happen. and this really is a pivotal moment in the history of this issue, and you can just sense it watching this tonight and seeing how that community is grieving and knowing how our whole nation is grieving. we do think this is a time for change and we do think president obama is going to lead us in the right direction. >> steve, the nature of this debate, i think, needs to be crystallized and clarified. t
people to be armed. and, indeed, the governor of michigan, rick snyder, has pledged to take a close look at legislation that would allow concealed weapons in schools and churches. will that save us from the kind of tragedy we had on friday? >> we work with survivors of gun violence every day. we just had, as you saw, many of them in to city hall to meet with mayor bloomberg. one is steve barton who was in the theater in aurora more a gunman killed so many people and his view is parallel to what you hear from law enforcement experts who are trained to use firearms who say there is no way in a confused situation on the street, in a theater, in a school that more firearms in the hands of more people makes you any safer, particularly because they're far less likely to be well-trained in their use than the police. >> goldie, you have handled serious firearms in your former life as a marine. is there any possible justification for a citizen to have access to semiautomatic weapons like a bushmaster and a magazine that can hold 30 rounds? what possible sporting justification is there for that? >

political activity. and i must confess, i took a look at it. when i got into the hospital in michigan, one of the fellows that i met there was bob dole. and we became good friends, even to this day. and i asked him, what are your plans? nt, without hesitating, he said that i'm going to be a county clerk and after that i will run for the state house. that is where i'm going. and i figure that is a good idea.

states are implementing these conservative ideas. we see states like michigan join us. we do not force people to join unions and economies move and want to be a part of what is happening. when you get more parents choices of education, it tells all children, low-income children, we see it all over the country. we can prove it with research prepare. when states have the right for their own energy, the revenues that come into the government help build better roads, better schools, and keep taxes lower. that is an opportunity i hope we can have in south carolina. this could be more efficient and do much better than we can do under the federal area. the principles of freedom are working. we need to spot like them, a showcase them, communicate them so people see that these ideas work. at the same time, they're going to be able to look to washington and see that the ideas that emplace are dragging us down. when washington hits a wall, the friends of freedom in south carolina and all over the country are going to be ready not with political ideas of american ideas, ideas we now are working th
. let's go to dan in michigan as i ignore the buzzer. dan. >> caller: hey, jim, thanks for taking my call and thanks for helping me trying to understand the stock market. >> my pleasure. thank you so much for the kind words. >> caller: my question is about w weyerhaeuser. do you think taking some profits -- >> no, no! i think this is a great housing play. i think 2013's going to be big. wy, actionalertsplus.com, we are not a seller. we are a buyer! let's go to james in ohio, please, james. >> caller: yeah, hi, jim. this is james from ohio. >> all righty. >> caller: i'm a big fan of you. what's your opinion on next era energy? >> i am not a big clean energy guy. i like clean energy. i don't agree, by the way, sierra club has come out way too strong against fracking. i'd rather be in kinder morgan. there's an energy company that does cleaner energy, and that's fine for me. and that, ladies and gentlemen, is the conclusion of the "lightning round." >> the "lightning round" is sponsored by td ameritrade. >>> coming up, fearing the worst as we approach the edge of the fiscal cliff? tweet
. second, on behalf of i'm sure i speak for the entire board of michigan coalition of responsible gun owners we offer our sincere condolence and sympathies for the victims and their families. we are all about safety. we all want to be safe and we certainly want children to be safe. like i said last week, we just disagree on how to get there from here. to answer your question, i would point out that the shooter in the mall in oregon was confronted by a legally armed citizen who pointed his gun at the shooter and then decided not to squeeze the trigger because he was afraid of missing and hitting bystanders. he was acting very responsibly. and the next shot that that shooter fired, that the killer fired, was on himself after he was confronted with an armed citizen. so that's actually one example of a responsible gun owner using a gun to save lives. >> well, he actually didn't use the gun. i think the point, dan, unless i'm mistaken. you take it up here. but i don't think any american citizen with a legal gun has ever intervened in a mass shooting, certainly not in the last 30 or 40 year

tarver, he worked for five years to build a small business in lansing, michigan. but in a few minutes, union workers destroyed his cart n. response, supporters created an on-line fund-raiser and donated more than $33,000. he says he plans to use the money to buy a brand-new cart. all right. thank you for that support. >> brian: they got to she will up -- shell up for a few tents. i don't know if you saw the sunday night football game, if did you not, you missed this tribute. they paid a tribute to all 26 victims in the newtown tragedy. 26 white flairs were sent into the sky during a moment of silence and they pledged $25,000 to help the families of the victims as fort game itself, the 49ers got off to a huge fight and withstood a 28-point comeback by the patriots. then a touchdown pass. they staved off the patriots. san francisco won 41-34. who is going to win the nfc east? we have a three-way tie. kirk cousins good, two touchdown s. washington wins against the browns. what about the cowboys? no way they're going to beat the steelers. wrong. roethlisberger finds the wrong team. the co
've got a group -- the michigan coalition for responsible gun owners arguing that actually having a gun saves people's lives. here's what he says. >> the shooter in the mall in oregon was confronted by a legally armed citizen who pointed his gun at the shooter and then decided not to squeeze the trigger because he was afraid of missing and hitting bystanders. he was acting very responsibly. and the next shot that that shooter fired that the killer fired was on himself after he was confronted with an armed citizen. so that's actually one example of a responsible gun owner using a gun to save lives. >> van, where do you fuall on this? because they make the case on both sides. on one hand, it is a very dangerous situation to have people armed. on the other hand, it does save lives in some circumstances. >> well, first of all, nobody is saying that, you know, all people should give up all their g guns, but people are tired now. we're tired -- it's not just these children, there are funerals all across the country every day. we're tired to going to funerals in chicago. we're tired of going t
. in michigan, and if you have photo id, you still should be able to vote just on affidavit. i think jocelyn can attest that is not an option that is often given to the voters even if a voter asks for. there is resistance. so we had a number of problems with that. virginia, there was confusion because you're a new law that went into the work of multiple forms of id. we did get reports of people that were being told they have to show a photo id. in texas during early vote that was confusion about the id requirement. we didn't have as many reports and south carolina about confusion. so it was mixed but it wasn't just states that had a debate about it but it affected this entire process because it greatest confusion about what was required to vote and what wasn't. that was an impact we saw. >> we might not agree on this one. i guess a lease on a voter id stuff, anything that we can do to make sure they minimize voter fraud, that being said i think all, we'll have and the total stories about it being back on it being good, it not being affected i would love to see a study offer this election telling
